Dan Berrigan - Winemaker & Vigneron

Dan is a cool climate wine specialist and has a laser-like focus on producing wines that are both varietal and regional. From managing the vineyard year-round, to plunging the ferments, stirring the barrels, blending the wines...Dan does it all. 

Dan believes in minimal intervention winemaking and that balance is more important in wine than power.

"As a Winemaker, what I look for in my wines is personality and poise. Personality in wine comes in the form of individuality, character and beauty and it is this personality that makes a wine interesting to me."The poise of a wine is the balance between the wine's flavour, sweetness, acidity, alcohol and tannins."This balance can often be difficult to achieve, but with every year of experience under my belt I've been getting closer and closer to perfecting this." Dan Berrigan

Dan Berrigan has over 19 years winemaking experience both in the Australian and North American wine industry. He graduated with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science majoring in Oenology (Winemaking) & Viticulture from the world renowned Adelaide University Waite Campus (formerly Roseworthy) in 2003, and went on to quickly gain experience both in Australia and abroad, focusing on cool climate regions such as Tasmania, Oregon and the Russian River region of Northern California.

At the end of 2021, she left her full-time job of 14 years working as an acting agent, to go "all-in" and become fully entrenched in the company. Wendi is now taking over sales in the Adelaide Hills, handling all customer service and marketing, along with working in the vineyards with Dan.

Maxxi & Milo - Wine Dogs

Maxxi and Milo are the masters of snooze! When they're not sleeping, they're zooming through the vineyard and hurdling over the drip lines. Maxxi loves a long game of frisbee and Milo loves a good play of tug of war!
